Learn More About Epergnes

The first known example of epergnes dates back to the mid-1700s, but it was the opulent aesthetic of the Victorian era that made these lovely centerpieces an essential item for the aspiring middle and upper classes. The word epergne actually comes from the French word "épargner" - which means to save. An epergne allowed one to adorn the table or sideboard with flowers in a beautiful, yet space-saving way.

The size and shape of epergnes varied greatly - from smaller examples which were designed only for displaying flowers, to much larger, more ornate pieces with bowls in either crystal or silver and suspended baskets for fruits, nuts or sweets.
